Orange receivers are built using original components, 32 bit MCUs and with state of the art SMT automation to ensure a quality product each and every time. Every single receiver is manufactured using impedance controlled PCBs with exact tuning to provide signal stability and range that exceeds any of the previous generation O products. In fact, our testing has shown that the R617XL exceeds the range of other receivers in the same class.
All R617XL Orange satellite module receivers are QC tested using our latest method that ensures range checking takes place as the receiver is programmed. Simply put, if the R617XL cannot pass the range check it cannot be programmed, this ensures 100% of R617XL's are guaranteed to work flawlessly. The R617XL ushers in a new era of quality, reliability and performance for the Orange line up.
The receiver features "True Diversity" technology, this is especially important for long range flights and in situations where you need that more robust reception. This receiver is very useful where carbon is used in the construction of your model where the antenna can be in the shadow of the airframe. If one of the antenna's cannot receive a signal due to its orientation then the satellite will use the other one to receive the commands from the transmitter.
